The Benefits of Omega 3
Longstanding official advice on fish consumption is to consume two portions a week, including one portion of oily fish. Fish provides omega 3 fatty acids, which are a family of important fats that are essential to the maintenance of health.
Although almost everyone has heard of the benefits of adding omega 3 fish oils to their diet, it is recognised that a high percentage of the UK population do not consume the recommended amount of fish. Fish oil is a rich source of the essential omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are understood to support heart health, brain function and vision.
The combination of EPA and DHA are well-known for their role in helping to maintain healthy heart function.
DHA lines the membranes of nerve cells in the brain, and as a result, it plays an important role in the maintenance of brain function.
DHA is also concentrated in the retina of healthy eyes and according to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), it contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.

UK Made and Quality Assured Fish Oil Capsules
Despite the health benefits of eating fish, traces of pollutants are present in even the world’s cleanest waters. EFSA reports that limiting consumption of fish products with a high content of heavy metals is the most effective way to achieve the health benefits of fish whilst minimising the risks posed by excessive exposure to these unwanted contaminants. In order to eliminate the presence of heavy metals and other contaminants, the oil used in the manufacturing of Simply Supplements Fish Oil products is refined using a state of the art process known as molecular distillation, which allows for the efficient concentration and purification of EPA and DHA.
According to the healthy eating guidance set out by the UK government, consumers should choose fish from sustainable sources. This supplement is manufactured by our supplier and meets all regulations and standards outlined by the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
